Hi guys, I'm off the smokes 12 weeks today and to be honest don't seem to feel all that much better. I've read all the bumpf on how your lungs start to repair themselves, when the risks of cancer starts to slack off, when and how to start to exercise properly again but these 'guides' all seem to be from people who never smoked and have no clue so I'm asking ex-smokers how long was it before you started jogging after giving up, how long you jogged for (slow pace for 10 minutes, three times a week for example). I walk very briskly down a gradient hill and up a very steep hill for about 40 minutes everyday and it doesn't seem to get much easier on my breathing. I'm 42 and feel like my lungs will never recover. I don't need anyone to tell me to have patience, that this is normal - just when to start jogging again without dying!
